“WEEKEND is a work of surpassing emotional insight and artistic accomplishment. It’s about (yes) the human condition — and it’s already one of the best of the year.” —Paul Brunick, Film Comment

Winner of Audience Awards at both SXSW and Outfest 2011 and the opening night selection of Brooklyn's acclaimed BAMcinemafest, WEEKEND is a startlingly authentic love story, featuring the talents of two incredible new actors and the unique work of a fresh new voice in filmmaking, Andrew Haigh.

After meeting one lonely Friday night at a bar, Russell (Tom Cullen) and Glen (Chris New) find themselve...s caught up in an lost weekend full of sex, drugs, and startling emotional connection. In the fast-fleeting couple of days, the reservations of earnest Russell come head to head with Glen's more strident sexual identity, and the romantic outlooks of both men are affected deeply. When Monday comes can their unexpectedly intimate connection survive separation?
